Keokuk appears to be on the verge of having a city administrator after nearly a decade without one.

The Keokuk City Council is gradually making progress toward the hiring of a city administrator, after not having someone in that position for seven years.

The idea of hiring a city administrator in Keokuk appears to be picking up steam.

It appears Tom Marion's current term as mayor of Keokuk will be his final one.
